The Potomac Pest Control group is pleased to announce the sale of its client, EcoShield Pest Control of Atlanta, Georgia and EcoShield Pest Control of Austin, Texas, by Massey Services.

“We are pleased to welcome the Atlanta and Austin EcoShield Pest Control team members and customers to the Massey Services organization,” said Harvey Massey. “We look for companies who have a reputation for exceptional customer service and EcoShield Pest Control has done an outstanding job in their commitment to total customer satisfaction.”

“This transaction bodes well for companies that have been built up through direct-to-consumer, door-to-door sales. As summer sales based businesses get more sophisticated as to how they grow and service their customers, retention rates have continued to increase and in some ways rival more traditional pest control companies — and the larger firms are taking notice. Massey Services tends to be very selective when it comes to cultural fit, and in this case, there was a perfect match with the culture of EcoShield and Massey’s culture of growth and excellence,” commented Sarah Sullivan, Potomac’s director of corporate development.

The acquisition of the Atlanta, Georgia and Austin, Texas divisions expands Massey Services presence in the Atlanta and Austin markets.  Massey Services is headquartered in Orlando, Florida and currently provides service to over 450,000 customers throughout Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas and South Carolina.
The Potomac Company acted as exclusive representative and financial advisor to the management and shareholders of EcoShield.
